"The most significant contribution
I have made to the small gas engine hobby was to publish this
book in 1997." The book is very popular with small, and large, gas
engine builders and collectors. The book was written to correct many
misconceptions concerning ignition coils and magnetos and to provide
working information to design, build, apply and troubleshoot ignition
The book also provides information
to build miniature ignition coils, magnetos and a coil winder.
It is a 281 page, library quality hardback with gold lettering
containing 116 drawings and illustrations. The book is written in
layman's terms. Technical terms and "buzz words" are avoided
for easy understanding.
Twenty one chapters
